    Are you sure she didn't get off her nest to poop? Broody poops are WICKED smelling!

    She might have had an egg bust under her. Go out either now or tonight when shes roosting/sitting and check under to see if an egg exploded. Thats the only explanation that i can think of.

    Yes ..check her out and see what the problem is ...she could have broken an egg that was starting to rot or she could be sick so whatever you need to find out quickly
